brown, who joins us live right now. mr. brown, congratulations. how have you done it? >> thank you, mainly through 35,000 men and women in uniform, but particularly through something called operation at attack where we send as many uniformed police officers as possible into areas where we have seen spikes and violence, particularly shootings. >> that sounds almost like a back to basics campaign. why was the decision taken to go in that direction? >> well, it started with mayor bloomberg and commissioner kelly coming into the office right after 9/11 with a deep downturn in the economy, less tax revenue. we lost 6000 police officers through attrition, we have 6000 fewer now than we had then. that forced us to take a look at how we deploy officers into the city. instead of dividing them up as we usually did into 76 precincts, we focused better on defining exactly where the most violent crimes were happening and putting the biggest number of officers there, the biggest bang for the block. new recruits coming out of the police academy, they all went there. they all went there, teams of
resilient and they are doing the best they can. >> reporter: but eric brown a lawyer says the best may not be good enough. >> the thing about the traumas that we read about and we have seen this happen in colorado and the past and virginia tech, is that the effects of this type of emotional trauma are long lasting and essentially chronic. >> reporter: that's why they are calling for help for the five to 15 police officers who were first to arrive on the scene of the deadly shooting. >> we are looking for funding mechanism to make sure that if officers need to take time off from work there's money available to continue their paychecks. >> reporter: right now, newtown police officers get 10 -- 10 paid sick days a year but brown says that's not enough to cope with a tragedy of this magnitude. and to make matters worse, work machine's compensation -- workmen's compensation in connecticut provides little coverage when it comes to mental and emotional issues. >> in the very small circumstance where a police officer is involved in a use of force so where he fires his weapon or is under threat
